Donald Trump will face Hillary Clinton in the second televised debate tonight, with his campaign in renewed crisis over “horrific”
comments he made about women.
Clinton and Trump will be surrounded by American voters who will pepper the candidates with questions. The debate will take in a town hall format with no podiums to separate the candidates, who will sit on stools
just feet apart from each other.
Trump has been threatening for weeks to dredge
up accusations that Bill Clinton sexually harassed women, and that Hillary Clinton enabled her husband’s actions. But after restraining himself in the first debate, he now seems to be chomping at the bit.
Beyond personal issues, Trump will have fresh ammunition from the purported transcripts of paid speeches Clinton gave that were contained in the hacked emails released Friday by Wikileaks. For instance, Trump is almost sure
bring up Clinton’s call for “open trade and open borders” in a speech to a Brazillian bank.
